Sounds like the woamn was just making a superficial joke/comment. Of course you can always dig deeper into what her energy was like when she said it (if she's the type to be insultive etc). What do you feel her intentions were? Casual conversation, or did you feel some jealously resentment coming through?

If shes just a jealous meaniehead, and not just making jokes, then think of where she is coming from...and recognize people are messed up in there own ways, and you can't change that. Recognize your own feelings, and how you can best deal with the pain. Of course you will take it personally, you are a sensitive being. But once you have a little space and detachment from the situation, you can decide how to move on from it, by seeing its her issue not yours...and maybe decide what you would liek to do about it, if anything.
